Lille vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 31st January 2021
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Lille will be the big favourites to win this game and any other result really would be a shock.
Lille come into this encounter in 2nd place and have 45 points and only goal difference separates them from the league leaders PSG. Last weekend Lille recorded a very good away victory against Rennes a potential rival winning 1-0 and they have won 4 of their last 5 games including their last 3 in a row.
Lille has enjoyed recent victories against Reims and Nimes and so they know how to adapt to play the bottom half clubs.
Dijon are in 18th but a surprise win and if Nantes lose would see them go to 17th and take over from them. The club though are not in good form and haven’t won a game since just before Christmas.
Last weekend Dijon lost an important match going down 3-2 to 19th placed Lorient which piled the pressure on the club and they will be expected to get nothing from this encounter.
Away from home Dijon have won just 20% of games but recent form on the road has improved and they have picked up 8 points from their last 15.
Lille vs Dijon Head to Head
- Last season Lille won this fixture 1-0.

Lille vs Dijon Prediction
Lille should win the game and have a great record over Dijon and are in very good form, everything points to a home victory.
But there isn’t much value in backing Lille to win since their quite big odds on at 1.30 (1/3). So we will look into different markets.
This is a game where Lille can be relentless and really go for it because if they play too slow then Dijon could get a footing in the game and try to frustrate them. Make no mistake a draw in this game will feel like a loss for Lille.
We will go for goals in this one and Lille should be on fire and be very dangerous from the first whistle.
